American POPsical Saturday
The Michigan Philharmonic, a musically creative professional orchestra based in Southeast Michigan, will present American POPSsical at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton.
The concert is a hybrid, mixing both pops and more classical works with an American flare. Popular tunes of George Gershwin and Cole Porter will mingle with the new sounds of “Pork ‘n Beans-A Detroit Counterpoint” by Detroit composer and former DSO bass player Rick Robinson.
The concert also features Samuel Barber’s Knoxville Summer of 1915 which recounts an idyllic Southern summer evening of long ago. Farmington Hills native, soprano Audrey Kline will show off both her classical and pops talents, drawing on her experience with the Michigan Opera Theater and Main Street Opera to Simply Gershwin at Greenfield Village.
The concert will also feature a rarely- performed classical work by Cole Porter-his jazz ballet, Within the Quota, the first ballet with an American theme, set to music by an American composer. Written in 1923 while the composer was living in Paris, the ballet was released a year before Gershwin’s famous work, Rhapsody in Blue.
